One of the more fruit-forward Pinots, the 293-case 2013 Pinot Noir Machado is 100% whole-cluster fermented and aged in neutral oak (as are all of the Pinot Noirs here). It offers terrific aromas of plums, Bing cherries, licorice and ample floral characteristics in a full-bodied, big, textured and layered style. While showing plenty of fruit, it's still perfectly balanced and stays fresh and thrillingly drinkable. In short, it's a downright sexy 2013 that will drink nicely for at least 4-6 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2013 Pinot Noir Machado presents a typical expression of Sta. Rita Hills Pinot in its rich, pliant fruit. Dark red and blue stone fruits, mint, lavender, violet and spice notes abound in a rich, broad-shouldered Pinot... The 2013 Pinot Noir Machado presents a typical expression of Sta. Rita Hills Pinot in its rich, pliant fruit. Dark red and blue stone fruits, mint, lavender, violet and spice notes abound in a rich, broad-shouldered Pinot with tons of complexity and textural richness. The 100% whole clusters are pretty much buried by the pure intensity of the fruit.

Wine Spectator, September 2015
Very tight and trim, yet deep and focused, leading with savory anise, black licorice and tea flavors, ending on a graceful, delicate note. Drink now. 293 cases made. –JL

Showing ripe aromatics of macerated blackberry, cola and black cherry with lighter hints of savory spice and underbrush. Up front there is a lovely combination of peppery spice followed by dried herbs that enhance the black cherry notes with a warm, broad and ripe profile. This is open and ready to enjoy and should provide ample pleasure over the next 5+ years.
